*FAYETTEVILLE DELIVERY SERVICE UPDATE FOR 2024. *

Our nonprofit partner Seeds that Feed has been graciously delivering online market orders to Fayetteville addresses. However, their funds for this service have run out. Therefore we have added delivery service item, to help their volunteers cover the expenses of delivery.

Delivery will still be FREE for the following customers:
—senior and SNAP customers
—customers who are not able to drive to pickup location
—customers who already donate each time they receive a delivery

If you are a customer in the above categories, please put “Free Delivery” in the comments as you finish ordering.

If you request delivery and you are not in the above categories, please choose delivery service as one of your items when you order. You can find this item under Delivery and the cost will be no more than $7 for each delivery date. This service will be charged to your order. We will make sure that Seeds that Feed receives all of those fees.

DRIVEBY PICKUP TIME AT THE LIBRARY OUTDOOR PARKING LOT is THURSDAY January 11 is 4:30-5:30. Note: if you already know that you cannot make it by 5:30 pm Thursday and you want to order this week, just reply to this email or text 479-935-5111 and we will work with you on a plan.

SEARCHING TIP: On large categories such as baked goods or meats click on the category to get a drop down of specific items in that category.

HOW TO CHECK ITEMS FROM A PARTICULAR SELLER? Scroll down on left side until you see “show specific growers”. If all the boxes are checked, you can click on “reverse all” then click the boxes on or off of those sellers you want to see. Then click “show specific growers” again.

TIPS:

1) Sellers sometimes add more products later in the ordering period, so be sure to check back. The product list changes each week, even from the same seller, so it’s worth exploring the categories you are interested in.

MISC MARKET NOTES

January Blessings


After many weeks of mostly mild winter weather today (Saturday, Jan 6) is a breath of fresh air and this editor was counting on rain to justify staying indoors for desk work. So I’m dealing with both gratitude for warmth and open doors and discontent that I’m not outdoors doing something my body thinks I probably shouldn’t attempt, lol.

Most people go into a New Year with resolutions; they resolve to do something to benefit them personally or professionally. This never a bad thing, but it can be attempted badly resulting in failure. Failure leads to discouragement and eventually discouragement leads to “why even try?”


My own experience is that I always attempted too much at one time and expected too much too soon. Last year, 2023, I went a different direction and did something different by making myself accountable to an outside authority. It worked, but it took a whole year to actually see results. The key was little changes over a long period of time. Then the blessing showed up.

Change is like that – in the case of resolutions in order to be permanent, it needs to happen slowly over a long period of time.

So whatever your 2024 goals are, make your plan, call in help if you need to, break it up into bite size chunks and keep working your plan. Eventually you’ll look back and be proud to say “I DID IT!”.
